I don't know where to begin or how to dissect the trip into manageable sections for reading? I think I'll just start with the basics for now, still too many pictures and videos to edit and go through. As far as editing the pictures, I will tell you up front, when possible, I prefer to edit out as much blood as I can when posting on the internet. The basics for this thread today; the who, what, when, how, and where of my trip, along with my primary goals. With who? The incredible PH - Pieter Delport and his Eintracht Jagd Safaris based about an hours drive east of Windhoek. What I hunted; Number one on my list, a Hartmann's Zebra, then a Burchell's Zebra, an Oryx, a Red Hartebeest, a Springbuck, a baboon, a jackal, and optional animal - a second Hartmanns's zebra, a second Burchell's, a Kudu, and/or a Blesbuck When; Based around the dark moon of September, 2019, which was the 28th - Duration - 15 days in country with 12 dedicated hunting days How; Primary bow - Bowtech RPM360 Backup bow - Bowtech Assassin Arrows - GrizzlyStik Primary Broadheads - 200 grain Cutthroat single bevel Backup Broadheads - 125 grain GrizzlyStik Massai single bevel and 125 grain SlickTrick RazorTricks *regardless of the broadhead used, all arrows weigh approximately 657 grains and have an FOC of 22%, +/- 1% Where; As the drought in Namibia has affected the area that is and around Pieter's main property, he had to improvise and overcome, which meant hunting three completely different areas in order to harvest the animals on my list. This was a nice bonus for me, as I got to see and experience a much larger and broader area of the country than I normally would have had we hunted Pieter's family owned land exclusively. Pieter basically looked at my wish list and determined the areas to hunt that would maximize our chance of success, and that's how it unfolded. Primary Goals; 1. To enjoy the trip, no matter what. 2. To harvest a Hartmann's Zebra with my bow. 3. To focus on old, mature males. THE HUNT: We started the hunt focusing on the Hartmann's on a piece of property in the Otavi area, near Etosha Park. Here we saw an abundance of Oryx, Eland, Duiker, and Hartmann's. While there, we also saw, in lesser numbers; Kudu, Red Hartebeest, baboon, Blesbuck, Blackface Impala, Springbuck, and warthog. A hyena was in the area and we heard it making it's call at dusk. That was awesome and chilling all at the same time. Also had a carical in visual range one evening. At this location I was able to harvest my first African animals. I took three Oryx, keeping one and the others were counted as culls in order to help reduce their numbers. Duiker was not on my list, but Pieter advised me to take this particular Duiker as it was an exceptional speciman. As it turns out, it may be #6 for a Duiker taken with a bow in Namibia? And obviously, I was extremely fortunate to harvest not one, but two Hartmann's zebra. The first was on old stallion that was running by himself. He was beat up, covered in scars, and his left ear was about bitten off from fighting. He'll be a pedastal shoulder mount. Then the following evening, their reputation for coming in at last light is warranted, a bachelor group of stallions came in and presented another shot. So I was blessed to harvest two Hartmann's with my bow and the second will be a rug. There was a lot of history that had transpired at this property over the last hundred years and it was quite interesting to listen to. One of the neat facts, for a Texan, was the fact that that over the years, they had harvested around 18 lions off this property, with at least one taken from a ground blind that we frequently hunted. This concludes the first location and the basics of the hunt there.
